T.S. Alex Predicted To Become Hurricane

Tropical Storm Alex in the Gulf of Mexico

We’ve got our first named storm of the 2010 Atlantic Hurricane season. Though it’s currently rated as a Tropical Storm, Alex is expected to make the upgrade to Hurricane at some point today. And at some point on Wednesday Tropical Storm Alex is expected to make landfall in Texas and Mexico. It’s certainly slowed down the oil clean-up process in the Gulf of Mexico, and people are bunkering down in Tex and Mex. Stay tuned for much more on Alex as well as the 2010 Atlantic Hurricane season.
